Burn: The Adaptors

Hosted by Alex Chadwick and Flora Lichtman, “The Adaptors” looks at people from all walks of life who are working to counteract energy and climate crises. Adaptors are all around us: farmers and coastal-dwellers finding new ways to work and live; scientists thinking outside the box about energy; corporate leaders bringing new technologies to market; DIY inventors dreaming up the next big thing in green living. These stories provide a window into the essence of who we are as a species – and a measure of hope that we can muster the will to tackle perhaps the biggest challenges we’ve ever faced.
